Training

The Cátedra was created within the University of Valencia, meaning that the education and training of new researchers plays a significant part in the centre’s activities. Since it was created, courses, seminars and conferences have been organised both at the University of Valencia and at outside universities and institutions.

Workshops, conferences and seminars

The Cátedra has organised workshops, conferences and forums on various themes to exchange knowledge of the history of transport and public works. These have included two workshops in 2013 and 2017, entitled Workshop de estudios interdisciplinares en la historia de la obra pública [Interdisciplinary studies workshop on the history of public works] and dedicated to ‘Photography and public works’ (Fotografía y obra pública) and ‘Engineering and the city’ (Ingeniería y ciudad) respectively. Other highlights include the two conferences organised in Alicante and Valencia in 2014, entitled ‘30 años construyendo puentes. Técnica e innovación’ [30 years building bridges. Technique and innovation], and other, earlier events, such as the 2005 and 2006 conferences on science and technical museums and Alicante’s metropolitan transport.

Master’s degrees and other courses

The Cátedra helps to train new researchers by regularly taking part in the Inter-University Master’s Degree in History of Art and Visual Culture (UV-UJI), coordinated by the University of Valencia, and in over 50 other Master’s and other courses organised by other national and international universities and institutions.

University extension courses. University of València

During the academic years 2003–2004 and 2010–2011, the Cátedra took part in and directed 13 university extension courses through the University of Valencia’s Office for University Extension and Society Outreach. Each ten-hour course was worth one credit and looked at the following themes:

• The architecture of the engineer Iron as a constructive system
• The industrial landscape in contemporary Valencian society
• The art of construction and public works in the Valencian Community. Antiquity and the Middle Ages
• Art in construction and public works in the Valencian Community. The early modern period
